Marissa Ooyevaar, who creates travel, wine, and lifestyle content across multiple channels as A Blonde Vintage, is a Willamette Valley wine insider and connoisseur. A couple of months ago she paid us a visit and tasted through our lineup, subsequently including us in her feature, “The Best Oregon Wineries In Oregon Wine Country.”

Marissa also included us in a recent roundup of the wines she’s currently enjoying, highlighting our 2021 Prelude Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir. She writes:

“I love wine. No secret there. What you probably don’t know though are what some of my absolute FAVORITE types of wine are… and from which wineries! Now don’t get me wrong, I’m a pretty non-discriminating wine drinker, meaning, if it’s good quality and tasty, I’m all about it! But, like everyone, I do have a few “go-to” varietals and particular wineries that I’m always excited to purchase wines from, open and drink (REPEAT). Today, I’m going to share with you the wines I’m drinking right now, including wine from Oregon… Cheers friends!

“Bells Up 2021 Prelude with only 101 cases produced, this delicious Chehalem Mountains AVA Rosé of Pinot Noir is full bodied, highly complex and features red ripe berries with a clean finish.”
